I am trying to make up my own special Wormhole concept, researching and trying to understand what the practical and theoretical sciences we have, and am curious if its good or bad? The simple idea is that multiple planets in the solar system are connected together via in-atmospheric wormholes that can drift between the heights of Mount Everest, or the farthest into the thermosphere of a planetary body.
Edit: The planets in their Ancient and Medieval epochs had access to aircraft and spaceships that were at least of 21st century technology, whether it was starship-esque transport ships or aircraft-like VTOL's that traversed the wormholes with minimal input.
Throughout history they've been traversed by those of medieval technology, to those armed with musketry, the explanation obviously withholding in some circumstances. But now in the present, the people on Galoupia possess bolt-action rifles and early vacuum tubes, whereas those on Castoraina are further back yet understand the White Channels as well. Would coal-powered, airtight vessels make the trip between the bodies?
The basic outline is that the solar system has an unexplained spatial phenomenon that has been lingering inconsistently between the planets, for several recorded millenniums. This gravitational phenomena is a massive and visually perceivable cone mass, like an outer-space wormhole that is in constant motion and in almost near transparency. These super-cones always possess the fundamental force of gravitational physics, but the inability to strongly channel electromagnetic forces further than any planets Thermosphere. These phenomena have been named many things by civilizations, but here they’re known as White Channels. What makes them unique is that they’re capable of filtering out dark matter and vacuum within its nature, and concentrating exotic matter in its place alongside residual planetary elements, the outside elements concentrated in a nebulous layer blanketing its exterior. Yet the most special feature of White Channels is that at both ends they’re the strongest gravitationally and the weakest along their length, enabling them to encapsulate the inside of their mouths, rudimentary elements of their host’s atmosphere, and pull up whatever comes close to them into the tunnel. White Channels are semi-permanent constructs that are in some strength of form always present in connecting bodies of gravity together, but their fabric can occasionally tear and occasionally mend, meaning they can create dramatic rifts or eventually meld into other White Channels - light years away. These events can allow electromagnetic energy to seep in, and in some instances change the direction of gravitational forces, transitioning WC’s from two-way highways to one-way roads or back. These masses ebb and flow, always in slow transient like a skyscraper under the duress of heavy winds, much to the chagrin of human history. When humanity was in the throes of the Bronze Age, White Channels were weaving through troposphere’s; Galoupia’s mountain ranges and Castoraina’s seas, allowing early civilizations to travel through them into White Streams, much smaller, temporary tunnels stretching along the locale, or the White Channels onto other bodies. Several thousand years later, they’ve gradually weakened. The dozen-or-so White Channels that sprung from Castoraina to Galoupia mostly evaporated, leaving several left withdrawn to the upper layers of their atmospheres. Long ago, galleys and armies in the right place, at the right time, could float away onto the next landscape yielding life or death in their journeys. Now, at game start when it requires rockets to grasp at them and the miraculous recovery of anti-gravity technology to exploit them fully, a new White Channel has exploded into the system. Named “White Heaven” by the locals on Castoraina for where it leads too, floats durably still in their Stratosphere above the western edge of Montessori.
